Day 11: Dissecting A Bird Pellet | 30 Days Wild

Today was an exciting day! I found the remains of a bird which had been predated and a pellet on the ground nearby. I took it back to my room to dissect and found the feathers and bones of what looked like a corvid as well as a half eaten beetle. Judging by the size of the pellet and the eaten bird I believe the pellet was regurgitated by either a red kite or a buzzard.
